Making the complicated simple

How we transformed PGMC’s course booking process, giving them back time, money and resource.

The challenge

Develop a user friendly website that facilitates the education, training and continuing development of health professionals at Cambridge University Hospitals Foundation Trust (CUHFT).

Course booking system

We created a bespoke platform that allows health professionals to plan, apply and pay for courses online, digitising what was previously a time consuming process.

Find a course, anywhere

Using an advanced search, speciality filters or the responsive calendar, students can easily find and book their preferred course.

Admin control

The PGMC team can manage courses, enquiries and customers using the fully bespoke cloud based admin area, giving them complete control wherever they are.

Simple payments

Students have multiple options for course payment, with each type of payment easily manageable in the admin area.

Navigation editor

Website admins have complete freedom to add, edit and sort the navigation menu to their exact needs.

form builder

Course creators can mark off any completed tasks via an online checklist. Once marked off, online tasks are automatically actioned, saving the staff member time.

Automated evaluations
& certificates

The system auto-generates reminders if a student hasn’t completed a survey, saving hours of time and resources during the evaluation process.


Digitising the process of booking online education, training and development courses, has saved invaluable time and resources.


“Big savings on employment, printing and stationery”

“Booking through the PGMC website has many benefits including less printing and collating of course materials resulting in a cost saving on stationery and man hours putting together course materials. Booking and making payments on-line has proved to be a popular and efficient method of paying for courses. This method of payment saves on the amount of time processing paperwork, and makes booking easier. Overall the PGMC has made a saving on employing temporary staff, together with a saving on printing and stationery”
